    Aotea steps.

    I love how jaggy and pixellated the figures look.

    Thanks Lilith. I feel like I should go back and have another go at it one day.

    Nice shot, Jonathan.

    Thanks – here’s the Corner Store a minute or two later. Once again using that handy fence post or railing.

    Did you purchase anything from the 24 Hour Church of Elvis?

    It would be a sin to travel so far, to stand in the holy place at the foot of your master and not imbibe of the great and wonderful bounty that he bestows upon one for a token.

    That was a really nice pic Geoff.
    Made me think of Pere Ubu's Turquoise Fins:

    Can't we stop along the way?
    We just passed by a place called
    Elvis Is Alive Museum
    and a Shop
    where
    we can get souvenirs & a postcard or two

    Jack says
    Man it's awful hard
    to be the one
    that everyone was waiting for
    It's lonely in the dark
    when
    media priests of the Big Lie
    own
    all of the words

    Did you ever wonder why
    your Elvis fans
    were so much nicer people than
    the people who
    laugh at
    them?

    Well, I put in a quarter and waited but my life was not transformed. Portland is a city where you queue in anticipation--outside Voodoo Doughnuts and the most popular breakfast joints,
    One of the best discoveries was a little park devoted to journalists and the newspaper business.

  • Jos,

    are those places worth the queue? Though I guess as an observer the queue itself would be interesting.

    The 24 Hour Church of Elvis was the first virtual place I visited the very first time I used a browser and searched/surfed the net. My first search entry was 'Church of Elvis" which lead me to the 24 Hour Church of Elvis.

    You are truly blessed to have travelled there in person - it is one of the three things I want/wanted to do before my passing.

    Well, it was a little puzzling, to queue in the street for 20 minutes and then go through a convoluted process in the shop itself, all for sugary donuts with daft names like Marshall Mathers and McMiniville. My objective was to get a tshirt for my daughtrer and I can only judge the quality of the fare on the one Bavarian Cream donut I bought. A bit too sweet.

    It is interesting how such places gain a certain mystiwque, when in other circumstance they would be run-of-the-mill shops. One other place I visited years ago was a bar devoted to Klinger from M*A*S*H, in Toledo, Ohio.,

    I wonder if it is just an American phenomenon. Nevertheless, I like places with literary or film associations, such as the Jack London bar in Oakland CA, for Jack did once drink there.

    In 1993, at the start of our Grand Tour, we went to San Francisco, and I was pretty happy to visit the Vesuvio bar, frequented by Jack Kerouac.

    There was a sign above the bar which always stuck with me;

    'If you drink to forget, please pay in advance!'

    the Vesuvio bar

    We had a Vesuvio in Chchch in the ’90s
    I did the logo and collaged the bar area walls
    with copies of posters and images, Bill hammond did
    a wall painting in the Teppan Yaki area,
    Mark Lander did the colour scheme and
    earth toned awning over the bar.
    it was a favourite spot for a while…

    I like this shot from the San Francisco bar

    Love the palm tree & pushchair. And of course the bubbles.

    Do you know how Mark is, these days? He taught me art in the 7th form, many moons ago, but an experience I'll never forget. :-)
